Hep to the Holidays

Broadcast: December 24, 2017 at 4 p.m.

This weeks Sunday Sound Adventure is from WFIU Public Media.

Night Lights' annual holiday tribute celebrates the season with plenty of cool-Yule jazz, including Shorty Rogers' take on "The Nutcracker," pianist Bill Evans having some vocal fun with "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" (as well as the backstory on how the song came to be written), guitarist Emily Remler offering up a luminous version of "Snowfall," and poet Sascha Feinstein reading his poem about the legendary Miles Davis-Thelonious Monk Christmas Eve 1954 recording session.
